Anger “Management”

Have you ever got mad? What are the things you do when you are mad? IS your anger affects those people around you?

This is another time for breaking some mindsets; it’s okay to get mad sometimes (Even Jesus got mad too when he drove those who were selling at the temple). BUT, don’t let that anger lead you to sin. Yes people, uncontrolled anger will lead you to sin.

Uncontrolled anger is like a wildfire that will destroy virtually everything surrounding it. In other words, your anger will affect ALL those people around you. And as we always see, it always has negative effects to those people around you when you got mad uncontrollably.

What does the Word of God says about this subject? First, anger will never glorify God, as what was written in James:

Human anger does not achieve God’s righteous purpose.

– James 1:20 (Good News Translation)

Second, it will lead you to astray.

A quick-tempered man does foolish things, and a crafty man is hated.

– Proverbs 14:17 (NIV1984)

Lastly, as what I’ve said a while ago, uncontrolled anger will lead you to sin.

An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.

– Proverbs 29:22 (NIV1984)

Just like what I’ve said, it’s okay to get mad, even Jesus got mad in some situations, but you must learn how to control it. Control it so that you will never fall to sin. When you are in that situation when you really want to explode in anger, you should pray for more patience Be patient at all times, brothers and sisters, for it will produce a good fruit.

Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.And the Lord’s servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.

– 2 Timothy 2:23-24
